Smooth, creamy and full of life with rich chocolate, toffee & caramel tones. Its depth of flavour is akin to a night spent with someone way out of your league. You know it's a special experience you won’t have often, so you look you know what you are doing and enjoy every bit as much as you can before it’s over.
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This is rich, creamy and has intense chocolate/toffee tones, a great milk stout with a donkey kick of carbonation to give it extra life
A long sparge ago in a mash tun far far away... The elite soldiers of the Hopire. They serve as ever present reminders of the absolute power of the Hoperor. These faceless enforcers of the New Order are considered an extension of the Hoperor's will, and thus they often use efficient yet usually unreasonable tactics as a way to keep thousands of brewery systems throughout the galaxy in line. Guardians of our precious resources they will happily lay down their life for the Hoperor to prevent rebel brewers making bad ale.
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This American Pale Ale uses a great mix of Columbus & Cascade hops with a little homegrown varieties to balance it out. It is an excellently balanced hoppy ale and is always in high demand
A warrior like this is rare. Strength gained the hard way by being heated and mashed until everything sweet has been extracted from what he once was. Resilient his now noble footprint commands respect by even the toughest adversary. Seen as an outsider, he has the body to survive where others cannot. Embrace the warrior within
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: This is a fantastically well balanced Pilsner showcasing the very best in local hops. The elegantly woven mix of Riwaka & Motueka hops at various stages offer a delightfully crisp New Zealand Pilsner. A very subtle hint of fruity Nelson Sauvin hops elevates this brew above the rest in our view.
Showing his Alpha side, he embraces the bitterness within. Bold enough to go where he dares, he leaves a mark strong with depth. Those that challenge his style quickly see he is not to be played with, even though he comes across a little fruity at first. When the road calls, you answer !
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: It is a hoppy, fruity & bitter IPA made using only New Zealand hops with generous servings of Pacific Jade & Nelson Sauvin
We have wanted to brew this beer for quite some time now. After finally getting a bag of the precious Amarillo hops, we didn't waste time and smashed out 1200 litres as soon as we could.. it'll be a while before we can make this bad boy again
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: With a sweet malt finish and nutty citrus flavour from Amarillo & Simcoe Hops, this brew is a bit of an unstoppable force.
Good food, good times and good brews make for a perfect storm of elements to create something special among friends. We got together with Pascal & the crew at Smiths Craft Beer House in Queenstown and designed a beer to celebrate our anniversary
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: US Cascade & Simcoe smash your palate in a fruit punch flavour profile that we hope you all love. American Ale Yeast, American Ale Malt & American Hops, it's a perfect Storm of awesomeness
"It hits your nose so hard your mouth feels what's coming next" Brewed with Cam from SOUTHPAW BREWING COMPANY in Christchurch.
ACTUAL TASTING NOTES: Centennial along with some of New Zealand's finest hops make up this fresh floral, massively aromatic bright ale. American Ale Yeast, American Ale Malt & American Hops, it's punches above it's weight
Special releaseWe have put a twist on an NZ IPA this year and made it snow for winter. We've thrown in a heap of torrified wheat and ramped it up with a whopping amount of Nelson Sauvin & Kohatu New Zealand hops.
